St Stephens UMC Food Bank, Ridgeland

The largest recipient of food from Second Helpings does not look the part, but has grown in the ranks and now receives close to 25,000 pounds of food per month.  St Stephens Methodist Church in Ridgeland has operted the St Stephens UMC Food Bank for the last 12 years.

What's all this talk about Homeplate?

The Second Helpings team deploying a new technology knows the first rule of such a project -- give it a name!  So they called it Homeplate (HP).  Homeplate starts with a database on the Web that includes our 250 volunteers, 125 donors and recipients, and the 20 unique daily routes we make each week. That aspect has been up and running since the summer of 2012. 

Twentieth Anniversay Celebration

On Thursday March 29, Second Helpings celebrated 20 years and 20 million pounds of food rescued.  Such a milestone!  Volunteers and supporting agencies celebrated with food, drink, plaques, and old stories.  Our founders, Guenther and Louise Hecht from Atlanta joined us for the celebration.  Many thanks to the hundreds of volunteers and agency supporters who have helped make this day possible, and to Sun City for the use of their facility.  Peggy Warnke, Executive Director
